Great opportunity for an eager employee, but too much bureaucracy to move things along

Pros

Wealth of resources, telecommuting and flex office policy means you can work from anywhere, lots of opportunities for learning and taking on extra responsibilities.

Cons

The resources are burdened with bureaucracy, because so many people telecommute, the buildings feel ghostly and you never know where people are on a given day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not sure how things have changed since the Oracle acquisition, but quicker turn around times for inter department tasks would have been helpful.

    Pros

    Great technology. Great benefits.
    A great place to learn state of the art technologies and techniques.

    Cons

    Small pawn in a lrge empire. Work often went unnoticed. There is a lot of excess brainpower walking the halls in search of a project to work on. Maybe too much time between projects because departments have too rigid boundaries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more cross pollination of projects, technology and ideas.
